Not less than Deven people dead from an attack on the founder of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman late Friday near Auchi at the Water Tank Junction along the Warake -Auchi Road on his way to Auchi returning from a foreign mission.

   The incident reportedly happened at about 5 pm when an unidentified group of gunmen who eyewitnesses said had been in a Toyota Avalon Car and a ash coloured Sienna vehicle without number plates opened fire at the homebound convoy clergyman.

 Eyewitnesses said the two vehicles blocked all other vehicles and maneouvered their way to the convoy before they simultaneously opened fire.

Amongst the deseased persons were three policemen a driver and other domestic staff of Apostle Johnson Sulrman.

The legal adviser to the Ministry, Sam Amune while confirming the incident said “I think it is a case of assassination attempt because the assailants who were in an Avalon and Sienna vehicles stopped other vehicles to reach Apostle Suleman’s convoy and they did not take anybody, the people just stopped and watched the drama unfolded.

It was gathered that the Apostle had just finished with a programme he attended in Tanzania few days back before, flew to Lagos and then to Benin where his family joined him. His children who normally ride in a separate vehicle this time rode with their father while other domestic staff where in a separate vehicle.

He barely escaped death but the others were not lucky, three orderlies who normally drive directly behind him and then the next vehicle were not lucky said Sam Amune.
